Ethics, practices and feelings of teachers in Hong Kong.

I have spoken to hundreds of teachers who are local Chinese over the years.  They say and feel one thing about their job, but they do something else in their work environment.  I have found most of them to be self serving, selfish and two faced.  The root problem is that teachers are given a path to be trained as teachers by their grades in the Hong Kong education system while they are yet students.   Being a teacher has nothing to do with wanting to be a teacher.   I think it is good that a teacher debate is taking place in Hong Kong and questions are being put on what goes into making a good teacher?  This is really best for students to be educated on what is a good teacher for the student and should a student be able to question and have a voice in what and how they are being taught?   Text below on the recent government debate taking place.

韓連山強調,守則並沒規定教師不准講粗口,是否有違操守應考慮整件事的來龍去脈,「唔能夠靠講粗口嗰幾秒去判斷佢係咪好老師」。韓又批評梁的道德層次太低,「唔講粗口係道德最低層次,最高層次係以公民抗命改變不公義法律。今次成件事個焦點錯晒,如果梁振英同吳克儉停留喺最低層次,覺得唔講粗口就係好老師,教出好孩子,實在太幼稚」。

Han Lianshan stressed that the code of practice does not require teachers are not allowed to speak foul language, whether it is against the ethics should consider the circumstances surrounding the whole thing, “well able to speak foul language GE for a few seconds to see them parking meters good teacher”. Han also criticized the beam and moral levels are too low, “no foul language-speaking of moral minimum levels, the highest level of civil disobedience to change unjust laws.This wrong thing focus exposes to the Sun, if you stay with Eddie Ng Hak-Kim LEUNG Chun-ying XI minimum levels, think well about foul language are good teachers, teach good kids, too naive “.https://www.facebook.com/james.hon1/posts/10151497241881734?ref=notif&notif_t=close_friend_activity

Chairman of the Council on professional conduct in education Han Lianshan, teacher Lin case to the Council Education Bureau has never followed up.
According to practice, if has teachers committed has criminal crimes, Education Bureau has task force Group research should warning or revocation the teachers of license; and non-criminal and involving conduct of case, is referred to the conduct Parliament investigation and the Institute News, if allegations established, Parliament will to education Bureau made recommendations of punishment, again by Council party decide, “I well know LEUNG Chun-ying of well know has does a conduct Parliament, will of deliberately well respect”.

Who claimed that the Chief should not interfere Ye Jianyuan education Legislative Council members noted that the individual teacher’s conduct within the scope of Xie Lingjie Ching, Permanent Secretary of the Education Bureau, generally handled by school district staff and Board of education. Eddie Ng Hak-Kim, the Secretary is responsible for policy, the Chief Executive should not intervene, “the Chief the whole day, a lot of people mad to do, well dealing with the political reform, why hand to Jones Lang LaSalle to so long this time? Get things big, direct intervention, into a society so strange.」http://hk.apple.nextmedia.com/news/art/20130812/18374645
Pan Xiaotao: Tung Chee-Hwa, Tsang, no matter how unpleasant, but at one point, they all have a second bottom line. But what about Mr LEUNG Chun-ying? He is not a man bottom line, so he will stop at nothing to achieve individual objectives! That’s why he’s terrible about. (Translated by Bing)
